ITT Sound Off: Pandemic and the Patriarchy

Maria and Julio break down the pandemic, specifically the white male leadership that has dominated news cycles. They also talk about the tug-of-war between state governors and the Trump administration on when states will reopen. Finally, this week saw a cascade of high-profile endorsements for the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, including from former competitors Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.  As schools shut and services become difficult to access, this is an especially tough time for our LGBTQ youth of color.
